BTL Vanquish ME & Exilis
BTL Vanquish and BTL Exilis are both non-invasive cosmetic treatments that use energy to contour the body and improve skin appearance.
BTL Vanquish and BTL Exilis
BTL Vanquish and BTL Exilis are both non-invasive cosmetic treatments that use energy to contour the body and improve skin appearance. However, they use different technologies to achieve their results.
BTL Vanquish uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to selectively heat and destroy fat cells without affecting the surrounding tissue. It is designed to target larger areas of the body, such as the abdomen and thighs, and is used for body contouring and fat reduction.
On the other hand, BTL Exilis uses a combination of RF energy and ultrasound technology to target both the skin and underlying fat cells. It is designed to be used on smaller areas of the body, such as the face and neck, and is used for skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and targeted fat reduction.
BTL Vanquish me and BTL Exilis are usually packaged together although the 2 treatments can be separated.
BTL Vanquish ME - What is it?
BTL Vanquish ME is a non-invasive body contouring device that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to selectively target and heat up fat cells without damaging surrounding tissues. The "ME" in the name stands for "Maximum Energy," indicating that this is the most powerful version of the BTL Vanquish device.
During a BTL Vanquish ME treatment, the patient lies on a treatment table while the device is positioned over the targeted area, which can include the abdomen, thighs, hips, or back. The device emits RF energy, which is absorbed by the fat cells and causes them to heat up and ultimately die off. The body's natural processes then eliminate the dead fat cells over time.
BTL Vanquish ME is FDA-cleared for circumferential reduction of the abdomen and thighs, and it is designed to be a comfortable and relatively quick treatment with minimal downtime. However, it is important to note that this treatment is not a substitute for healthy lifestyle habits such as regular exercise and a balanced diet.
BTL Exilis- What is it?
BTL Exilis is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses a combination of radiofrequency (RF) energy and ultrasound technology to tighten and contour the skin, reduce wrinkles, and target unwanted fat. It can be used on various parts of the body, including the face, neck, arms, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.
During a BTL Exilis treatment, a hand-held device is used to deliver controlled RF energy and ultrasound waves into the targeted area. The energy penetrates deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity, resulting in a firmer, smoother, and more youthful appearance. The device also delivers heat to the underlying fat cells, causing them to shrink and ultimately be eliminated from the body.
BTL Exilis is a non-invasive alternative to surgical procedures like facelifts and liposuction, with no downtime or recovery period required. It is a comfortable and painless procedure, with many patients comparing it to a hot stone massage.
The number of treatments needed will depend on the individual's goals and the extent of the treatment area. Most patients will require a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results. The effects of BTL Vanquish and Exilis are long-lasting, but may require occasional maintenance treatments to maintain the results over time.
Who is this for?
This treatment is suitable for adults who have unwanted pockets of fat in the abdomen, hips, or thighs that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is important to note that this treatment is not a weight loss solution and is not intended for individuals who are significantly overweight or obese.
The ideal candidate is someone who:
Is close to their ideal body weight
Has unwanted pockets of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise
Is in good overall health
Has realistic expectations about what the treatment can achieve
Is willing to commit to a series of treatment sessions
One of the benefits of Fotona IntimaLase is that there is usually no downtime required after the procedure. Most women are able to resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Some women may experience mild discomfort, swelling, or redness in the treated area, but these side effects are typically mild and temporary. It is generally recommended to avoid sexual activity or using tampons for a few days after the treatment to allow the tissues to heal properly.
Overall, Fotona IntimaLase is a non-invasive and relatively low-risk procedure that can be performed quickly in a medical office setting, and does not require extended downtime or recovery.
Preparation & Aftercare
Hydration: It is important to drink plenty of water before and after the treatment to help the body eliminate the destroyed fat cells.
Avoiding certain medications: Certain medications, such as blood thinners, may need to be avoided prior to treatment. It is important to inform your healthcare professional of any medications or supplements you are taking.
Avoiding sun exposure: It is recommended to avoid sun exposure for a week prior to treatment, as sunburn can increase the risk of complications.
Wearing comfortable clothing: Patients should wear loose, comfortable clothing to the appointment as the treatment is performed while lying down.
Hydration: It is important to continue to drink plenty of water following the treatment to help the body eliminate the destroyed fat cells.
Avoiding alcohol and caffeine: Alcohol and caffeine can dehydrate the body and hinder the body's ability to eliminate the destroyed fat cells, so it is recommended to avoid these substances for at least 48 hours after treatment.
Avoiding vigorous exercise: Patients should avoid vigorous exercise for at least 24-48 hours after treatment to allow the body time to recover.
Maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle: While BTL Vanquish ME can help reduce fat, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle to ensure long-term results.
There are a variety of alternative treatments for body contouring and fat reduction, both non-surgical and surgical. Some of the most common non-surgical options include:
Morpheus8 Body is a non-invasive, fractional radiofrequency (RF) treatment that can be used to tighten and contour the skin of the body. It is a type of body contouring treatment that can be used to address areas of the body with excess skin and fat, such as the abdomen, arms, thighs, and buttocks.
BodyTite is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten the skin and reduce fat in targeted areas of the body. It is a type of body contouring treatment that can be used to address areas of the body with excess skin and fat, such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, and arms.
Lipodissolve: an injectable treatment that uses deoxycholic acid to dissolve fat cells.
Surgical options for body contouring and fat reduction typically involve liposuction, which is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body using a suction device. Other surgical options may include tummy tucks, arm lifts, and thigh lifts, which involve removing excess skin and fat from specific areas of the body and tightening the remaining skin.
